Amazing Grace

saved by grace

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2:8-10)

One thought on “Amazing Grace

  1. Immediately after my wife and I accepted Christ, we began attending at an independent fundamental Baptist church. Much of the teaching was good but there was also a heavy emphasis on rules and guilt. After 8 years of this I walked away from the church and the Lord. When I returned to the Lord three years ago we attended a church which emphasized the Lord’s holiness and also His grace and forgiveness. What a difference! The Lord commands our obedience but is merciful and forgiving. Yes, it’s by His grace that I am saved, NOT by my ability to obey. When our focus shifts from ourselves to Him and His grace, then we can begin to serve Him with a joyful heart rather than being overburdened and guilt ridden by our imperfections.
